New publication

To Fight Against This Age: On Facsism and Humanism is the latest publication by Rob Riemen. Eloquent as per usual, Rob Riemen combines knowledge of history and philosophy with literary sensibility when he explains the global return of fascism, disguised in the false promises of bringing freedom and greatness.

His own response to the spiritual crisis of our age, is a moving story about the meaning of European humanism with its universal values of truth, justice, beauty and love for life — values that are the origin of a democratic civilization. This work belongs to that category of books that are as timely as they are timeless: to be read by those who want to understand and change the world in which they live.

Timeless Values in a Shifting World

The democratic societies of the modern world are facing challenges new and old to their openness and security. The territorial integrity of Europe has been breached by Vladimir Putin’s dictatorship while terror both from abroad and home-grown has no simple solutions. Evil still persists in the world today and will only grow if unopposed. Open societies that cannot protect their citizens will not remain open for long.

No one is simply entitled to democracy or even basic human rights. I was always looking for a more aggressive approach, because I believe that you have to be ahead of the curve.
